. this comes as former president bill clinton at a private meeting was warning fellow democrats about dismissing progun arguments. he said that could be very counter productive for democrats. interesting mix here. byron york joins me now. chief political correspondent for the washington examiner. good to have you with us. >> good morning, mar that are. >> an interesting comparison. if you less ton what the president has been -- if you you listen to what the president has been saying lately he has been really putting gun owners on the defense eastbound. when you look at the numbers the nra in the country is more popular than the president right now. >> sure is. i think it is important to remember in these fights between the two that people have been members of the nra and supporters of the nra for longer than barack obama has been a politician, much less the president. and i should say also that in this fox news poll people had a more favorable impression of the nra not only than president obama but also the democratic or republican parties. there s a pretty deep reservoir of goodwill

? >> it was more about the individual popularity of the one barack obama plus bill clinton. after all, it was a decisive victory, but it was a victory for the man, not necessarily the party. >> is that how you read it, john? do you see this being an obama victory as opposed to a liberal victory are or they intertwined? >> i never want to disagree too much with one of the greater politicians in american history, but i would suggest that there was a little more party there. you won a couple u.s. senate seats that they weren't supposed to win sometimes because of republican flubs. 1.4 million more people voted for democrats for the house than voted for republicans, only gerrymandering kept the house where it is. and so i think that this man has done a lot to build a broad progressive coalition, but your core question is the important one. can you hold that coalition together? >> mayor -- >> let me say this to you though, i believe that it would have been a more telling benefit for the party if it had been nancy pelosi re-emerging as the speaker of the house and if democrat governors had

. compare him to george bush and bill clinton. george bush reached across the aisle with ted kennedy for the the no child left behind and bill clinton reached out to republicans and worked with them to pass the north american free trade agreement over objection of majority of democrats. where are barack obama's bipartisan achievement and legislatures he passed working with republicans against democrats? not a single issue he stakes a claim against his own party for the good of the country. his model is stimulus, and obamacare where he maximizes his position and rams it through as best he can and look, it's worked for him. he won, got both of those bills through and he won reelection and i see no sign whatsoever he's going to become the post partisan president in the second term that he promised to be in his first and never was. >> megyn: the question is though, simon, whether and even -- putting aside the fact that he's fighting for what he wants and that's what a president is supposed to do, it's the language and the impugning of the motives. when he was running for office back in '

lbj and trying to get drinks with -- how come you're not like bill clinton and not inviting mitch mcconnell and harry reid to camp david. how come you're not like ronald reagan and throwing back whiskey with tip o'neill. it is that stuff, as you've been noting and he pointed out, he does this but i think this is where there's a little bit of disconnect. i think there are people on the outside and look at what other presidents -- and say, why don't you do this more? the white house will say, guess what, people used to say the same thing about clinton and reagan. my guess is the truth's somewhere in between. it's not exactly as if the president uses his golf game to lobby members of congress, he doesn't. not as if he has a card game once a month he's bringing over the leader. he doesn't do things like that. is that part of the job description? >> the president said at the press conference yesterday, he has played golf with john boehner, does a good golf game. it didn't help in the negotiations. boehner keeps refusing invitations to multiple state dinners. there seems to be a problem wh
